Hi, there. Welcome to BYC.

Until you can get him to the vet tomorrow morning, just keep him in a dimly lit, stressful free, warm area, with feed and water provided. You can try offering him some soupy feed, or mashed scrambled eggs, but it sounds like he wants to rest.

Ok thanks for the advice I'm gonna stay up with him all night and check on him. My wife's sister got these ducks and wasn't allowed to keep them so I took them because I didn't know where they would go ive only had them for about a month or twobut I'm new to this and it scared me so much I love all animals.
